I attended a medical meeting here and the meeting facilities were very good. The location is good as this is within walking distance of the beach and the Dutch Hospital. The hotel is very busy and so check in took some time; we asked for our bags to be taken to the room, but after a long wait and no... More

The hotel location and room sea view is very nice, but the furniture is getting old. Needs some renovation. The staff were very help and friendly. It was my second visit after 2012 to the hotel, and it was not better this time. The food was accepted.

Although the hotel location was near enough to markets and malls, and the restaurant (coffee shop within the hotel) was awesome and the food was good, but the rooms were very bad. The furniture was about 20 yrs old, the toilet was floated with water, and the rooms and floors had a very bas smell. Eventhough we stayed 3 days... More

High Tea @ Galadari is something that me and my family keeps on going when ever possible. Basically because of the price and the quantity. I think it is the most cheapest high tea in town with a huge variety. It's always crowded but they will serve all the items in the menu till the end of service; which is... More

However the infrastructure needs an overhaul very badly as this place is well past its prime and could do with a some renovation. My cab driver too said that the locals perceive this as a transit hotel... More
